That is possible doublee. Especially the part about having problems with public funding of a ballpark.
Major League Baseball got themselves into a big jam allowing the Expos to go "unsold" while a couple of owners changed teams. The Commissioner's Office needs to divest itself of this team and, if a team cannot be sold, another team cannot be bought. Baseball has to be certain of the capitalization of this ownership group, including plans to build a suitable venue for it. Now is not the time to discover problems of this magnitude.
This said, I hope all the problems can be worked out and a team name will be chosen by the owner's meetings next month.
